Early morning walks in the bush - or to your favourite fishing spot - are wonderful experiences. But we have found two things a tad annoying: Wet trousers bottom (& socks) and ticks. For this reason we decided to make separate trouser legs for your Rufiji Zip-Off trousers made from a new water repellent version of our BUGtech fabric, called BUGTech+. What is equally exciting is that the bag in which these BUGTech+ trousers legs are packed is also water repellent!

Product Information

Features that make these trousers legs such a great idea!:

Early morning walks in the bush - or to your favourite fishing spot - are wonderful experiences. But we have found two things a tad annoying: Wet trousers bottoms (& socks) and ticks. For this reason we decided to make separate trouser legs for your Rufiji Zip-Off trousers made from a new water repellent version of our BUGtech fabric, called BUGTech+. Simply remove the MaraTech legs from your trousers and zip these BUGTech+ legs onto the shorts section of your trousers and et voila you have added a new feature to your Rufiji Zip-Off. The shorts section will still wick moisture away from your skin and keep you cool, whilst the leg section (where you do not sweat) will help to keep your legs dry and ticks at bay. Of course we recommend that you add in a good dose of RID Insect Repellent just to make certain that the ticks go elsewhere for their blood diet. In essence therefore you have two pairs of trousers. What is equally exciting is that the bag in which these BUGTech+ trousers legs are packed is also water repellent!

• Our BUGTech™ fabric has been proven in independent tests by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) Pesticide Trial Section to effectively repel insects. What is more, the majority of insect repellent garments on the market today have very poor wicking as it usually conflicts with the insect repellent finish on fabric and so, while your garment may keep insects away, without wicking the shirt will not keep you cool. We tested our BUGTech™ against our MaraTech™ range which is highly effective at wicking moisture away from your skin and the results were impressive. Please view both test results in the product images above. We know of no other manufacturer willing to publish their results.
• QuickDry: These convertible trouser legs will wash and dry quickly, to ensure that you are able to wear them time and again on your safari or travels.
• SPF50+: The Sun Protection Factor is a measure of the amount of the sun's ultraviolet rays that reach your skin. Our MaraTech fabric will protect your skin from harmful sun exposure - in effect sunblock for your clothing. This is the highest SPF rating we know of on a garment.



Wear with the Women's Rufiji MaraTech Zip-Off Trousers.


How many to pack

It is handy to have an extra 'pair of legs' with you. One pair per person is recommended.
